Shane Hurlbut Relationship Tid-Bits

Shane Hurlbut has been happily married to Lydia Kunkler for 32 years. The two are high school sweethearts. They attended Southern Cayuga High School together. The fate of the two was sealed in a high school play in which they were dancing partners. They fell in love then and haven’t been apart for a single moment since.

The couple shares the same east coast roots. They were brought up in a small, rural town in New York. Unlike many other actors and entertainers in Hollywood, neither came from a family of actors or entertainers. While Shane was mostly raised on a farm doing farm chores, Lydia grew up with the added pressure of being the preacher’s daughter. The love birds began dating when they were in their junior year of high school.
